Investors are putting pressure on companies to disclose their carbon related risks and resilience strategies.
This pressure is coming individually from investors and through activist groups.
For example, Climate Action 100+ is a consortium of investors managing $35 TRILLION in assets which is pushing for disclosure and emissions reductions in the companies they have invested in.
Private equity firms are also now screening their businesses and potential targets for climate-related risks that may lower their valuation.
The Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance, is another example, convened by the UN. This group manages $4 TRILLION in assets and has committed to transitioning their portfolios to net-zero emissions by 2050.
This pressure is only expected to grow in intensity spurring Boards and CEOs to take decisive action.
